This interview was conducted by Linked Jazz as part of their work to promote the
careers of women in jazz. In 2015, staff at the nursing home River Garden Hebrew
Home contacted Carnegie Hall about resident Zena Latto, who performed with a band
of female jazz musicians at Carnegie Hall in 1957, on the same night as the famous
benefit concert for the Morningside Community Center, hosted by Carnegie Hall. Not
having any documentation of this event, Carnegie Hall then established contact
between Zena Latto and Linked Jazz.
